Jon & Kate Plus 8

Gosselin

A lot of changes are occurring in the Gosselin family following the public divorce of Jon and Kate Gosselin after 10 years of marriage and eight kids.

On Tuesday, TLC announced that the show will be renamed Kate Plus Eight, beginning Nov. 2, reports US Weekly. As usual, the show will continue to focus on the lives of the young Gosselin twins and sextuplets, but will now also focus on Kate’s role as a single mother.

“Given the recent changes in the family dynamics, it only makes sense for us to refresh and recalibrate the program to keep pace with the family,” TLC president Eileen O’Neill said in a statement. “The family has evolved and we are attempting to evolve with it; we feel that Kate’s journey really resonates with our viewers.”

A source tells PEOPLE, “Given Jon’s recent antics, there was no way the show could continue to portray him as a doting Dad, not while all this other crap was going on.” Those recent antics include dating 22 year old Hailey Glassman, and the most recent one occurring this weekend when he decided to add Hailey’s name to the official Gosselin family website. Hailey’s name has since been removed.

The show’s rating continues to decline weekly. The show premiered with a whopping 9.8 million viewers but now has fallen to a season-low of 1.7 million.

Earlier this month, Kate appeared on The View as a guest host and recently filmed a pilot for a daytime talk show with Paula Deen.

“I’ve been given the gift of gab, so why not use it?” she said at a women’s conference earlier this month.

Jon was also reported to be shopping around for a reality show called The Divorced Dads Club, costarring Michael Lohan, among others.

Hayley Glassman, Jon Gosselin

In a bizarre twist, Jon Gosselin’s 22 -year-old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman was added to the family’s official website.

Hailey’s name was placed in the “Meet the Gosselin Family” section of the site, sixgosselins.com.

“Please Note: Hailey Glassman does not have a Facebook account at all. Her official Twitter account is HaileyGlassman1 and Jon’s is JonGosselin1,” it now reads.

This is not a smart move on Jon’s part considering that both Kate and Hailey have been at each other’s throats.

After Kate Gosselin recently complained on “The View” that Jon introduced their young kids to Hailey, she used Twitter to shoot back, “I was never at Jon and Katezilla’s house nor did I meet the children.”

Mean while, Kate attended the 8th annual “Stars, Stripes and Skates ICEtravaganza” in Danbury, Conn., this weekend. Despite all the family drama, Kate says, she is doing great.

Asked how she is doing these days, she told Usmagazine, “Great, thanks.”

UPDATE – As of 09/29/2009, Hailey’s name is no longer on the site, likely due to all the backlash received.

It seems like both Jon and Kate Gosselin enjoy being in the tabloids. The he-said she-said conflict between Jon and Kate continues and there is no sign of it ending anytime soon. After Kate appeared on The View as a guest host, she gave an ambiguous answer about Jon allowing girlfriend, Hailey Glassman to meet their eight kids. Jon is now responding in the media, and denies any claims of Hailey ever meeting the kids.

I’ve never brought Hailey to meet the kids,” he tells E! News, “nor do I plan on doing that anytime soon.”

Similarly, Hailey denied the rumors on her Twitter page, writing “I was never at Jon and Katezilla’s house nor did I meet the children, And nor am I in a rush to… When the truth finally comes out, the public owes Jon and I a HUGE apology, until then keep hating n being blinded, Bunch of Helen Keller’s.”

BTW: Because Helen Keller was known for being such a “hater.

A source close to both Jon and Hailey tells E! that Jon asked Kate where she’d heard about the “Hailey-meets-kids scenario”. Kate responded that she saw it “in the tabloids.” The source added, Jon will consider introducing the kids to Hailey “at the appropriate time” once the divorce is finalized.

There’s a major twist in the Jon and Kate Gosselin saga and it has left Kate crying.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse. Jon recently informed Kate that he wants to bring girlfriend, Hailey Glassman to their Pennsylvania home very soon to spend time with their children, RadarOnline learned exclusively.

According to her pal, Kate was devastated by the news and cried hysterically. Kate wants Jon to reconsider introducing the kids to girlfriend, Hailey, because she thinks it’s hard enough that the kids have to deal with the divorce. In addition, Kate thinks adding a parent’s new romantic interest into the equation right now is simply too much for Kate the kids.

It seems like its pay back time for Jon – any opportunity to make Kate miserable.

“I think Jon is incredibly insensitive for doing this,” Kate’s pal from Pennsylvania told RadarOnline. “This came out of nowhere. It took Kate totally by surprise.”

A source familiar with the Jon & Kate Plus 8 stars says, “Jon thinks Kate is a big drama queen and turns on the tears to get sympathy.” Jon was unsympathetic to Kate crying.

In an ABC interview earlier this week, Jon said he despises Kate and loves Hailey more than he ever loved his wife.

Jon Gosselin appears in his first television interview following the divorce announcement from estranged wife, Kate Gosselin. In the interview, he talks about years of abuse during their 10-year marriage.

“I took a lot of abuse from her. I was put down,” he says on ABC’s Good Morning America. “She’ll call me like, almost like a lame fish. Like I wasn’t going anywhere.”

He also says that Kate was always travelling while he had to stay with the kids — 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah).

“Well, excuse me, I’m taking care of the kids. She’s on book tours, she’s doing all these things. You know, she’s gone a week. You know, comes back. Packs up and leaves again,” Gosselin, 32, says. “I’m standing there like, ‘Oh, OK. Your mom’s gone again.’

Since the split, things have been stressful for the couple, he says. An incident occurred last month, during which the police was called into their home, because Kate unexpectedly showed up while he was spending time with the kids.

“I wouldn’t let her in the gate,” says Jon, who is still dating Hailey Glassman, the 22 year old daughter of the plastic surgeon who performed Kate’s 2006 tummy tuck. “I said I’m spending time with my kids … and she’s going to have to leave and she tried to cry it up with the cops and it didn’t work and they told her she had to leave.”

You can watch the full Jon Gosselin interview on ABC’s Primetime: Family Secrets, Sept. 8 at 10 p.m. ET.

We reported on Friday that Jon and Kate Gosselin were involved in a heated argument that led the police to order Kate to leave her $1.1 million dollar home.

According to USmagazine, Kate returned to the house to be reunited with her kids and Jon. Even though they chatted briefly, the tension in the air was apparent. The kids didn’t look happy and one of the sextuplets was seen wiping her eyes.

Not long after she arrives, Jon drove away. The estranged couple have said they will trade off living in their estate depending on who has supervision of the children.

“It was a miscommunication. Kate said she was coming home, and I said, ‘Well, it’s my time to spend with the kids.’ I don’t come home when she’s with the kids, and vice versa — and that’s how it’s supposed to be,” Jon explained, adding that Kate tried to “cry it up” to convince the cop to let her stay.

In an interview, Jon said Kate didn’t approve of the nanny Stephanie Santoro (a 23-year-old single mother who also works as a “shooter girl” selling shots at local club Legends). Last week, we reported that the pair were caught canoodling.

“I guess she didn’t agree with my babysitting,” he admitted.

At this point, these two really need to put aside their childish attitudes and focus on the kids.

Even though Jon and Kate Plus 8 returned to TLC Monday night, the viewers did not return. The ratings have declined tremendously since the 1 month long hiatus.

According to USmagazine, the return of Jon & Kate Plus 8 brought in less than half the audience of the show’s previous episode.

The first half hour of Monday’s show showed Kate and the kids vacationing while Jon supervised their kitchen renovation, the second hour showed Kate camping with the kids without Jon. Both episodes drew 3.9 and 4.1 million viewers respectively.

The May 25 premiere brought about 9.8 million viewers so this is a significant drop. It may be time for TLC to pull the plug on this show.

Reality seems to have finally set in for Kate Gosselin, who eventually took off her wedding band as news about her estranged husband gallivanting with other women can be seen all over the tabloids. Unlike Jon, Kate has taken a more subtle step toward a new life. For the first time, the reality star was photographed without her ring during a coffee run near her Pennsylvania home.

Even though Kate may not have been ready, Jon has certainly moved on after 10 years of marriage. Jon has been linked to a couple of women including 22-year-old Hailey Glassman and recently a tabloid reporter.

Kate on the other hand has been busy taking care of the kids. On Thursday, she took her two eldest children, Cara and Mady, 8, to a Jonas Brothers concert in Philadelphia, Pa.

“She gave a couple of waves and smiled to the crowd,” an observer tells PEOPLE. “She seemed like she was in a good mood … She looked great and got the VIP treatment.”
